This week we conclude our two-part interview with Dr. Tim Ball, "retired" lecturer in geography and historical climatology at the University of Winnipeg, Canada.
In this second part we move on to discuss the "hottest year on record" phenomenon, the question of data tampering in climate science, and the recent statement by Dr. John Bates that significant research challenging the (roughly) 20-year "pause" in global warming was (in his view) flawed.
[In part one we
discussed issues surrounding the lawsuit brought against Dr. Ball by the climatologist Dr. Michael E. Mann; Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs); Dr. Ball's experience of having recently been invited to Washington in connection with Trump's transtion team on the Environmental Protection Agency; the EPA's future under Trump; and the political "hot potato" question of the relationship between Big Oil and Climate Scepticism.] (For show notes please visit http://themindrenewed.com)
